Just a little chisel tool I made this weekend .
It is made tor dovetail shaped screw plugs wherever I like a dovetail shape or even a butterfly decoration .
There is nothing wrong with round or square plus or even a screw head but the dovetail shape is what I like in some applications .
I made this little tool from some scrap APITONG wood which was left over from a truck deck ,very hard wood and some knife blades with a single bevel cutting edge .
Nothing special about this just glued together with GORILLA SUPER GLUE which I thought would never hold but it does the job so far .
Comments welcome

That is a really great idea. you prefer dovetails, but something similar could be made to accomodate some other shapes as well. Squares, Diamonds, etc. I will have to keep this idea in mind for later, thanks

Every time I get on lumberjocks my want to do list gets bigger. This one is going to the top of the list. I can think of may instances that it would be useful, and like Ben said, It can be made in any shape to really at a stylized look to any project.

Great idea Kiefer and thanks for sharing it with us
